wood pellets
« on: August 13, 2005, 08:08:08 AM »
I was wondering if there was some equipment available for small quantity wood pellet manufacture. We all have sawdust that we could put to use. I know they use softwood sawdust. Any idears?

 Try looking through the processing stages at this link.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

Sure there is.
I ran a pellet plant for a time....All you need is stick stuff and a semi verticle pan to roll it around in!
